Book Title: Inner Feelings
Author: Cindy Ann D’Silva
About Book (Blurb)
Inner feelings are something some of us don’t recognize, or probably are afraid to address, or think it’s wrong if we feel a certain way. Inner feelings come, inner feelings go, some we need to talk about, and some we need to conquer. But, once we accept them and understand them, we can only decide how to handle them.
If we are shown how to understand and accept our inner feelings right from a young age, we could probably get through life more easily, especially when people and things around us change ever so quickly.
I thought this was apt for those who wanted to understand their inner thoughts through short and crisp passages.
Don’t forget to check out author Cindy Ann D’Silva’s another book ‘Aavishka’ that she published with her debut book ‘Inner feelings’
Cindy Ann D’Silva is a blogger, influencer, content writer, and belly dance instructor. Before this, she had a full-time job and sang with a band & choir in Kuwait, where she was born and bred. Currently, she resides in Bangalore with her husband and two kids. You can find more of her writings on her Lifestyle blog https://www.blogaberry.com/
The book “Inner Feelings” By Cindy Ann D’silva constitutes 27 chapters, showcases all the inner feelings that a human goes through in his life, E.g., Appreciation, confidence, gaslighting, passion, nostalgia, hope, strength, jealousy, etc. needless to mention sometimes we are well aware of such feelings, however, most of the time it goes unaddressed that indeed derails the purpose of everything we have. Furthermore, the author has also shared few moments from her life where she witnessed how things have gradually fallen into place by a mere acceptance and acknowledgment.
The language of the book is flawless and straightforward. In many places, the author has given her own examples, to which readers get an instant connection; I must say that this way author has successfully tossed the coin in her favor. Especially the chapter Nostalgia will triumphantly take you down memory lane.
I wish the author could have been a bit elaborative in the chapters. Inner feelings are a very vast subject to talk about, where several known, unknown, inner, outer factors also play an unavoidable role in hitting one’s feelings. This book is more of the author’s own feelings in the journey of her life.
I consider the book under the category of ‘One time read’ for all age groups. A few incidents and experiences mentioned by the author would be very helpful for everyone looking for ways to come out of their passive thoughts and to lead a happy, meaningful, and creative lifestyle. I will give a 4 out of 5 ratings to this wonderful read. So go download your copy and enjoy the debut book by Cindy Ann D’silva ‘Inner Feelings’ over a cup of masala tea.

Chit Chat Corner With Author Cindy Ann D’Silva
Q.1 What inspired you the most to pen down on the particular subject or genre?
Cindy ~ I have been writing about inner feelings for more than a year now, so it only fitted to start with that subject before writing anything else. I have observed that we have feelings that remain unheard of or not talked about, or left for later because we have no time to sit and talk about our deep inner feelings. Some of us still don’t understand, and we live in denial or believe that we are not SUPPOSED to feel a certain way, which is not true.
Q.2 Have you ever gotten writer’s block? How you overcome it?
Cindy ~ Of course! After writing my book, I sat on it for a week. Then I checked its spelling and grammar and again sat on it for a week because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to end the book or write more. Then I drafted my fiction book ‘Aavishka’ before I completed ‘Inner Feelings.’ So, every time I got writer’s block, I would snooze it out and then read and add more content to the books with fresh eyes.
Q.3 What is the best advice you would like to give to budding writers?
Cindy ~ Well, as a barely new author, I would say that one should write from his/her heart. I mean, some of us have awesome imaginations too, so when you think of a storyline, start writing and then give it time. Don’t write in a hurry just because others are writing. Believe in yourself and write. Give it a month or two… or maybe three. But, write, give it time, and then you’ll surely release an awesome piece of work.
